    Well I added to the stack of beech today. It is a bit oversized so It will be split down more which means more wood ::-) ;ex The only downside was my stupid trailer hub blew again but for 25 bucks to pack it for a trip yielding close to 2 full cord it was totally worth it.

    Pete, I see you changed locations for this wood! Hopefully no light fingers will take any.

    Well the bins are still behind the garage so I used the fence line because they are to big right now. I will split from the fence line and put the splits into the bins. My yard is so small that I don't think it matters much where I put it if they want it they will take it sadly.

    2 cords is a nice score.

    Looks like you got some wet snow. Plan to cover the top?

    I don't quite understand blew the trailer hub & $25 to pack it?
    New bearing & race? Just packed with grease?

    The "again" part makes it sound like maybe a bent axle

    Ya new bearings 3 times and races last time so I am convinced its time for an axle finally. I am stubborn lol.

    I could lend ya Mack for month or so. Probably solve the theft problem.==c As far as that trailer hub, I'm guessing you're right, it must have a slight bend/tweak in there somewhere. That's a bummer. A C

    I know nothing about beech. I don't think it grows here. Looks pretty cool. Very colorful.

    American beech is found within an area from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia west to Maine, southern Quebec, southern Ontario, northern Michigan, and eastern Wisconsin; then south to southern Illinois, southeastern Missouri, northwestern Arkansas, southeastern Oklahoma, and eastern Texas; east to northern Florida and northeast to southeastern South Carolina. A variety exists in the mountains of northeastern Mexico.

    Nice job Pete. Big beech has a tendency to be hollow in the center but still real good wood. Are those pallets your wood is stacked on? Lol...;)

    Yea Dennis, you met him, He'll get your attention if you're doing something you shouldn't be. He seems to instinctively know when something is amiss. Usually He'll back em into a corner so you've got ample time to draw a good bead. A C

    You hauled 2 cords in one trip with what sounds like a single axle trailer?

    Beech is roughly 4000lbs a cord.
